Through our housing, employment, and treatment programs, we will serve more than 20,000 unduplicated individuals this year in more than 70 locations throughout Delaware, including New Castle, Kent, and Sussex Counties. The services we provide are available to anyone in Delaware who needs them, regardless of where they live, the extent of their problems, or their ability to pay.
Connections is one of Delaware's largest and comprehensive nonprofit organizations providing housing; outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment; DUI services; homeless outreach; primary medical care; community-based case management; home health care; and employment assistance for people who have barriers to employment. Connections’ programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF accreditation guarantees that our programs have passed an in-depth review, which takes place every three years to ensure continued compliance and exceptional treatment services to the individuals we serve.
Our staff of over 700 employees includes physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and other professionals and paraprofessionals working in Wilmington, Newark, Smyrna, Dover, Seaford, Millsboro, and Georgetown, serving more than 40% of the people who participate in Delaware's system of care.
